Raw Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

4 Tablespoons almond butter
4 Tablespoons honey
4 Tablespoons filtered water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cup organic quick oatmeal
1/4 cup raisins

Whisk almond butter, honey, water and vanilla together until smooth. Stir in cinnamon.

Add oatmeal to honey mixture, one-half cup at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition.

Mix in raisins.

Take a teaspoon (the kind you set your table with, not a measuring spoon), scoop up a spoonful of cookie dough, and using another spoon, slide the dough off the spoon onto a Teflex sheet on a dehydrator tray.

Repeat with rest of dough until all of the cookies are on the Teflex sheet.

Place in dehydrator set to 115 degrees, for about an hour, or until the outside of the cookies feel dry (and not sticky) to the touch. Flip the cookies over on their ‘backs’ and let the bottoms dry.

Remove from dehydrator and enjoy!
